Re: what should be checked in lay out in outlook express?

Yes, they are two different things.  Show preview pane in layout tells OE 
whether to use the preview pane at all.  The preview pane shows the content 
of the selected message without you even having to open the message.
You have your message list and beside it, you have a preview pane which 
shows the content of the selected message.
In the tools, options, that specifies whether to display the body of a 
message in the preview pane.  So this only applies if you have the preview 
pane checked in layout.  If you use the preview pane, but you uncheck this 
then
you would see the preview pane, but all it would show is the headers of the 
selected message  (the from, to, subject).  Then you would have to press the 
space bar on the header in the preview pane to actually have it display the 
rest of the message text in the preview pane.  So that would be like opening 
the message.
 The reason for this is security.  As someone said for security it is 
advised not to use the preview pane because the content is actually being 
shown without you even having to open the message and so a virus like script 
could run.
You can eliminate some of the risk by having it show the preview pane in 
layout, but not the content of the message until you press the space bar on 
the header in the preview pane (the tools read option).
I know that wasn't very easy to understand, but I tried, smile.
